Greetings from India.
Am an amateur and not the technical guy for this. My service provider is facing some difficulties and seek your help.
We have an employee database created in MySQL and PHP platform on the Linux OS. We are trying to connect the Fingerprint Reader which is on the LAN with an ip address.
Can we connect directly to the fingerprint reader to download the logs directly into mysql?
can it be connected by using PHP?
can anyone be of a help with the coding? The lan ip address of the fingerprint reader is 192.168.0.8.
Please share and help us.
Regards.

Greetings of the day Chorn,
We download the logs/punches using a windows based attendance management program software and saves the files into the .mdb format.
The php/linux system then fetches the log files from .mdb to mysql database. So we have to use two softwares, making it cumbersome, time consuming and at times loss of data.
Please guide me.
Regards.

Greetings from India.
This Windows based management software downloads the punches and stores them into an .mdb (Access) file.
This is not a open source and infact we are looking for an open source for linux.
